COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Too extreme to be called beer? Brewed to a colossal 45°P, boiled for a full 2 hours while being continually hopped with high alpha American hops, dry-hopped every day in the fermenter for a month, and aged for a month on whole leaf hops, 120 Minute IPA is by far the strongest IPA ever brewed. And at 21% ABV and 120 IBU’s, you can see why we are calling this the Holy Grail for Hopheads. Editors note: ABV reduced down to 18% in 2009.

Bottled. Aroma of hop and alcohol. Lots of pine in the flavor, with a finish that isn’t as aggressive as I thought it might be. Tasty.

Clear golden. Smells and tastes like nail polish remover. A little sweet. Not enough flavor to cover up alcohol taste. Smooth texture though with no aftertaste.

I let this sit in the refrigerator for a month before I broke down and popped the top. First impression; this is a boiler maker taken to the next level. The sweetness is complex ,a mix of dried fruit, honey and maple syrup. Zero citrus which would have been a disaster. The120 IBU stands up to the sweetness but this concoction is no hop bomb . Whiskey from nose to the bottom of the glass. A great experience but overpriced at $13.00 bottle and I prefer Burton Baton from DFH.

notayankee (35) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 3, 2015
Aroma is roasty, with a hint of nuts and toast, nice resin and citrus forward. Appearance is amber and cloudy with a frothy, 1 inch tan foam. Taste is of medium sweetness, medium bitterness, medium sourness, seriously hits umami on all ponts. Texture is creamy, carbonation is lively, bitter. This beer has a long finish, with lingering bitterness that eventually gives way to a sweet malty ending. Lives up to the hype.

RyanK (254) - Rhode Island, USA - JUN 4, 2015
I got this is december and poured it in june (12oz bottle). Amber body with white head, shows a lot of sediment and carbonation. Smells to me like the dogfish 60 malt concentrated with a somewhat heavy alcohol, not overly boozy on nose at all. The other 12% IPA i’ve had is evil twin Molotov cocktail, both brews leave me chewing on the taste afterwards. Malty sweetness dominates the dogfish head, the alcohol is well hidden but still feels like you’re drinking a cask aged beer. Strong taste but not overwhelming. Worth a try if you can split it.

Clear yellowish amber pour, slight white head. Massive hop, warm sweet malt finish that stays warm way into the finish. Unique and it works well.

12oz bottle poured into glass. Orangish color with lots of hop and citrus smell. Actually wasnt as overpowering of an alcohol tatse as I expected. Great beer. A must try if you can get your hands on one!

This is definitely a boozy I.P.A. with a strong hop presence (with some citrus aftertaste). Light amber in color with no head and very little lacing. Smells of hops/citrus and booze. Very little to no carbonation present in the beer
